Stocking Card

Today is Tuesday and that means another Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge. This week it's a sketch... like I've said before, sketches are my weakness, so please be honest. :)
My card is a 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" base so it'll fit in a standard A2 envelope. All my patterned paper is from the Holly Jolly Christmas paper pad by Echo Park (I LOVE this paper).

The red glitter ribbon trim is actually Glitter Garland by Darice. I bought a 25 foot spool of it on Clearance last January. I cut it down and clipped the corners for my card.

The inside of the card has matching paper and glitter trim too.

My stocking is mounted on the green square with pop dots. The red layer measures 2 1/8" x 2 1/8" and the green layer measures 2" x 2". I added some stitches using my white Gelly Roll gel pen.

This adorable stamp came from a $1 pack by Scrappy Cat. I found it at Joanns in the dollar bin. It also came with the rhinestones I put on the cuff of my stocking.

This cute little stocking is from Christmas Cheer. I cut it at 2". The cuff and toe/heals are cut from white glitter paper by DCWV. I love that paper and it's easy to add a little sparkle using just scraps. 

Here is our sketch this week. Please jump over to Die Cuttin Divas to enter the challenge.

Your card is wonderful! I love that patterned paper and the "stitching" around the green layer looks great. Gorgeous ribbon/garland, too!
